Amitabh Bachchan, the esteemed host of the 15th season of Kaun Banega Crorepati, has captured the hearts of countless viewers since the show's inception. Known for his ability to elicit personal stories from contestants, Big B's hosting style is one of the key factors driving KBC's immense viewership. He frequently shares memorable anecdotes from his own career and personal life, offering unique insights. Here are some of these captivating stories:
Amitabh Bachchan expressed his gratitude to his makeup artist for consistently ensuring he looks handsome on the show. In a promotional video, he affectionately said, "Humara jo chehra hai na yeh sab inki badolat hai. Inka naam hai Deepak Sawant. Ye hamara chehra banate hain. Agar hum khoobsurat lag rahe hain to inki badolat. Apko batade 40 saal se yeh hain hamare saath." (My good-looking face is all thanks to him. His name is Deepak Sawant. He takes care of my face, and if I look good, it's because of him. He has been with me for almost 40 years.)
In a recent episode of KBC 15, Amitabh Bachchan complimented former Indian cricket player Kapil Dev on his iconic mustache. In return, Kapil Dev praised Big B's French beard. Amitabh shared, "I don't maintain them. They maintain themselves. During the shoot of my film 'AKS,' I was asked to maintain my beard like this. I saw myself in the mirror and liked this style. Ever since, I have kept this style. Also, as you age, there are things that add to your face like double chin and wrinkles. I realized it helps hide the double chin and keeps me wrinkle-free. So, I have kept this style and trim it at times."
During a recent episode of KBC 15, while conversing with special guest Kapil Dev, Big B shared that Shah Rukh Khan had promised to have his vanity van designed by Gauri Khan. He mentioned, "I saw her interior designs. Recently, I was shooting with SRK and while talking, I went inside his van. It is beautifully designed, with a TV, sliding sofa, kitchen, and many other amenities. He said it was designed by her. He also told me that he will inform Gauri, and she will work on designing my vanity van, but it hasn't happened yet."
